It depends on the product ordered; each product in our database shows its typical availability. Even though we have 915+ unique items in stock here in our warehouse we also drop-ship and/or consolidate items from various partner manufacturers. Our customer service team will provide the most accurate lead time upon formal confirmation of your order and collaborate with you on the most preferred shipping method.

Acart offers you the option to use your facility's freight account by selecting Bill My Freight/Courier Account. Our customer service team will retrieve the information at the point of order confirmation and fulfilment. Shipping terms are FOB Origin when using your own freight account.

If your item weighs more than 100lbs (sometimes 150lbs, dependent on product), Acart offers our LTL (“less than truckload”) rate. This is when logistics providers transport your order on a truck with other shipments. If orders are several pallets/carts then a full truckload may be required. For LTL and truckload shipments, unloading is performed by the receiver. Additional services such as unloading (“driver assist”), appointment-deliveries, inside deployment and tail-gate truck are extra.

If there are any visible signs customer must sign the waybill for product damaged and notify customer service as soon as possible; images of damage are encouraged. Acart will replace the damaged item at no additional charge or may offer a discount on the product if customer opts out of waiting for a replacement.

Assembly, Installation & Deployment

We offer pre-assembly of stock or consolidated product (not drop shipped) at our Ontario location. Depending on the location we ship either rolling or palletized. Assembly charges are added to the product and are based on product type.

We offer on-site assembly which is arranged with our local representative and their team. This is dependent on client location and subject to availability. For onsite assembly we require access to a dedicated staging/assembly location and to waste and recycling bins for organized disposal of pallets and/or packaging materials. Assembly charges are added to the product and are based on product type. Assembly does not necessarily include product deployment/set-in place.

At an additional charge, Acart personnel can deploy and put equipment in place. This is facilitated with projects where the carts/cabinets are required to be delivered to final location. For cabinetry this can include the installation/securing of cabinets. Acart will work with you on a full-scope solution based on your requirements.
